THE WATER AT THE END OF THE WORLD

DIRECTOR: Paula Siero - ARGENTINA

Sisters in their twenties, Laura and Adriana live together in a dingy Buenos Aires apartment. When Adriana is diagnosed with a terminal illness that gives her only weeks to live, she makes a final request of her sister, namely that she travel with her to the literal end of the earth—Ushuaia, at the southern tip of Argentina. The problem is that the paltry income Laura earns by working at a pizzeria isn’t enough to pay for the trip. Then she hooks up with Martín, an alcoholic accordion player, and the two embark on an intense liaison while scheming to raise funds for the voyage—until, that is, Martín develops an attraction to Laura’s dying sister. Mixing humor and heartfelt drama, Siero takes viewers on a journey of their own—into the complicated world of two sisters embracing life even as they face death. (84 mins.)

First Feature.
